Manufactured by Schluter-Systems, EMF-cancelling DITRA-HEAT radiant heating cable installs directly into DITRA-HEAT or DITRA-HEAT-DUO cable installation membrane (sold separately) for use under tile or stone flooring.
Additional benefits include:
• 3-stud spacing is standard spacing (generates 12.7 Watts per square foot)
• NEW alternate spacing is now an option for more heat output
• Low profile of 4.8mm for cable and 5.5mm with membrane
• Compatible for shower floor and benchtop installation
• Significantly reduced installation time. No self-leveler required!
• 15-Year Manufacturer Warranty with opportunity to extend
Cable spacing of 3 studs is standard, but closer spacing of 3-2-3-2 provides more heat or allows you to “use up” extra cable if you have too much. 4 stud spacing is NOT recommended.
Running cable is more difficult/time consuming than installing mats.
All substrates must be clean, even, and load bearing. Bond inhibiting surfaces must be removed prior to the application of DITRA-HEAT.
Note: Minimum tile or stone format is 2" x 2" (5 cm x 5 cm).
